FEC Takeaways: The Freshmen Are Fundraising Fine

It's not all rosy news for the minority party, though: Some of the money Democratic candidates raised in the fourth quarter will be spent not on running against Republicans, but on member-versus-member primaries forced by redistricting. Two of House Democrats' top 12 fundraisers last quarter -- Michigan Rep. Gary Peters and California Rep. Howard Berman's party-best haul of $1 million -- are running against fellow caucus members, and Democrats have six of those contests to navigate, twice as many as Republicans. Hotline subscribers can view House FEC charts for merged seats, open seats, freshmen, and veterans to watch at House Race Hotline.
